This is my adidas

I feel honoured to announce that adidas originals came to visit me at home to check out my adidas for their 
confirmed app.
It's always a challenge to choose a few favorites for short formats such as this, so I went for some vintage, 
some retro, some running, some basketball and I hope you enjoy the selection I made.
You can watch the whole video on the confirmed app or below:

Sneaker Freaker Issue #47 feature

It's been over 8 years since my last Sneaker Freaker appearance and I am more than honored 
to get a monster feature of almost 30 pages in the current issue #47
A huge thank you to Woody for his patience and for giving me the creative freedom to bombard 
him with pictures of over 80 pairs as it was impossible to decide for some 20-30 favourites 
(trying to go for just 1 example pair of a model I love and not all the CWs and variations I 
own also helped a bit) and for letting me talk some real talk about what OCD/OSD and serious 
collecting actually means for one’s sanity and surrounding.
I feel super grateful for this massive feature and being able to speak my mind instead of 
answering the same questions I am asked at every interview is a huge privilege!
Sneaker Freaker Magazine #47 is now available and I can’t wait to hear what you guys have 
to say about it.

Nike Air Max Day 2022: Give Fresh Air SNKRS Live Gameshow

I spent the weekend in London to represent Berlin at the SNKRS live gameshow for Air Max day 2022.
3 Teams with 4 candidates each, battling to win a donation of 40.000,-€ for a charity of their choice.
It was an intense battle between the teams, but in the last round London completely turned the tables 
and won for their charity @caramelrockofficial !!
Nevertheless Nike will also donate a generous 30k to @afterschoolhustle and Team Amsterdam’s 
@favelastreet which is all we where fighting for!
Big up to the winners and team Amsterdam for being such great opponents and wonderful company. 
Thank you also to @jakobmerten @joana.jordan @merelana @tantoomuch and Sonja for making us all shine!
And last but never the least thank you to my @goerl_scout for all her picture assistance and the good time.

Are are some impressions; all pictures as usual after the jump

1980 Nike Cascade Run Off Geisha Artist Proof

The Cascade Run Off is a 15km marathon event that was held every June from 1978 to 2007 
in Portland, Oregon, home of Nike. 
In the vintage collectors community nowadays the run is mostly known for one of the most 
famous merch Nike ever produced; The "Ukiyo-e" / Geisha T-shirt.
The artist Scott McIntire also printed some limited artist proofs for himself, one of which you can 
see below.

Apparently the design came about because Mt.Hood near Portland looks a bit similar to 
Mt. Fuji in Japan. Also Sapporo had been the a sister city since 1959, so these two connections 
with Japan inspired the Geisha Motive for the 1980  Cascade Run Off.
